I praise your for our Messiah,
who has saved us in mercy into rightful relationship with you.
I praise you that you knew our grief
from the moment of birth,
the loss of our connection to you,
the longing for your love, for things unseen,
for heavenly realms with words lacking to describe,
not knowing what I don’t know,
only feeling utterly lost, alone in a world that lies about you.
And you closed the gap,
your heart bleeding through your Son,
showing in life, in flesh, in time, on earth,
your glory, beauty, holiness, and love,
witnessed by the world.
I praise you for sending the hounds of heaven
throughout history and time to chase us
down generations and family lines to each individual heart,
the Spirit hovering over all our chaos, rage, and pain,
showing a different way,
lighting the narrow path,
the small, humble steps to your glory and bliss,
rooting us in righteousness,
your hand firmly holding us
that we would no longer be swept away.
I praise you for your mercy, long-suffering, and faithfulness,
your love, and your hand that is mighty to save.
I bless your name, Holy One of Israel,
for bringing salvation to the world,
and seeing me,
a speck in history,
to set apart and make yours.
Thank you Abba, I worship you and love you.
I pray let your glorious light of mercy and truth,
grace and love
shine through me.
